Add students

Give your students access to Stile lessons by adding them to your Subject.

In order to see and participate in the lessons you release to your students, they need to join your Subject with their own Stile accounts. This can be done in just a few minutes at the start of class, and it only needs to be done once. Adding students is done via the Students page in each Subject.



There are two ways to add students to your Subject:

  1. The Class code;
  2. Invite via email.


The Class code

The Class code is the easiest and most preferred way to give your students access to Stile. It is best used when students are sitting with you or following along in a video conference, ready to go on their tablets or laptops. 


Step 1: Get the class code for your students

Click the green Students button to go to the Students page of your Subject.



The 6-digit Class code will be boldly displayed at the top of the page in dark blue. This is what you will need to share with your students. The whole class can use this same code.

Note: The class code expires every 14 days and a new one is automatically created. If you have a latecomer who needs to join, check your Students page for the current code!


Step 2: Instruct your students to join

Direct your students to go to in their web browsers and enter the 6-digit Class code displayed on your screen. 



The name of your Subject will appear when the student enters the Class code, and they will be prompted to enter their email address next.

When they enter their email address, Stile will automatically detect whether or not it is already tied to a Stile account. A student with an existing account will only need to enter their password. Otherwise, they'll be asked to enter their name and create a password for their new account.

Note: If a student has an account but cannot remember their password, they can reset their password and then continue to the join page.

After clicking the Sign up! button they will be taken directly to your Subject to get started on the first Lesson.


Add students via email

This is especially useful for distance education, virtual classrooms, teaching remotely, or for students who are absent on the day that the Class code is given. It does not require the student and teacher to be present at the same time.


Step 1: Draft the invite email

Click the green Students button to go to the Students page of your Subject.



Click the Invite students via email button directly above the Class code on your Students page. A window will pop up. Carefully read the information and instructions as this has changed



Enter your students' email addresses (one address per line) in the text box. If your default Email app is Outlook, tick the Format for Outlook with semi-colons box below the text box.

Click the blue Email class button. This will open a new message your default email app. The students' email addresses will be filled in, and the body of the email will include instructions and a Class code for your students. Make any adjustments you'd like to the body of the email, and then send it.


Step 2: Instruct your students to join

The students will each receive an email with a link to join your class. Students without existing Stile accounts will also be taken through the account setup of adding their name and a password.

Once they join, they can discard the email and simply log in from to access your class.

If a student already has a Stile account set up at your school, then they will be automatically added to the class.

Note: If a student has an account but cannot remember their password, they can reset their password and then continue to join your class from the invitation.


Optional: Send invite emails directly from Stile

If you do not want to use your own email to send invites to students, then you can opt-out of the new method. The old method sends invitation emails directly from Stile.


Below the blue Email class button, click on Revert to previous version

To opt back into the new method at a later date, contact the Support team to enable it again for you!
